Is my sentence correct?

Can prevvious be replaced with either prior or preceding?

Thanks.

Yes this is fine. Previous (note only 1 's') is the best possibility here. 'Preceding' is also possible.

'Prior' cannot be used here. It is not very common. It collocates with 'engagement' ("I'm afraid I can't come to the meeting as I have a prior engagement/commitment" - in other words, I have an other commitment that I organised before you asked me to come to the meeting).

Understand!
Thanks so much, Ratiatum.
